What year is this 155HP?

[ Edited ]

Could use some help to determine what year this motor is.  No data plate.  Thanks!

Remove the cover and inspect the powerhead for a 1" silver disk with numbers tamped on it and post them here

Perfect, thanks!

8183925 is what I found. There was a little hash mark or something before the first 8 but definitely not a number.

Believe it is a 1990 Evinrude commercial series  V6 engine!

Is that based on the number I provided?  I assume it's a good thing?  I read they come with the higher horsepower lower unit and some other upgrades?

Not based on the number you provided I was going by the paint ant trim. Yes they had larger gear cases stainless steel in some areas and lower compression so they could burn low octane fuel!

Different gear set and housing for HD commercial use. Not so much for higher HP but for HD use. Commercial version of the 150 HP other than that. Compression the same as all crossflows except the GT and XP series. (bathtub heads and same part numbers)
